Here’s an odd riddle, I couldn’t answer – perhaps you can. Some might find worthy of discussion.
What exactly was the purpose behind all of those inquiries into President Obama’s Birth Certificate? Was it, as many have presented and thousands have bantered back and forth, to finally find out if President Obama was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii.
Was that the goal?
If that was the goal, and if it was discovered that President Obama was born in Kenya to a Kenyan father and American mother (Ann Dunham), as best we can determine from the thousands of opinions on the matter, and according to those most heavily invested in this expedition, President Obama would have been ineligible for Presidential office.
So, according to those who understand these issues, if the birth certificate showed Obama born outside of the U.S. he would have been ineligible.
Just so we’re clear before proceeding:
If Candidate Obama birthplace was outside U.S. = ineligible.
Well, if that is accurate, then how is Ted Cruz eligible?
Senator Ted Cruz was born in Canada, to a Cuban father (Cuban national at time of birth – U.S. citizenship much later) and an American mother. Isn’t this the exact same set of circumstances as President Obama only without the birth certificate argument?
Assume for a moment that President Obama was born in Kenya (most people say that would have made him ineligible).
♦ Obama born in Kenya. Cruz born in Canada.
♦ Obama born to African national father. Cruz born to Cuban national father.
♦ Obama born to American mother. Cruz born to American mother.
Same set of circumstances, just different countries.
Yet Candidate Barack Obama is ineligible and Candidate Ted Cruz is eligible?
How does that work?
Help me understand.
